Using Isopropyl to make cannabis oil
Ok so i have some Isopropyl alcohol that says it is 50% by volume..... On the side it also says "dangerous if taken internally"..... im assuming this only means if it doesn't all evaporate..... Will this work for making safe, clean oil?
You can get all the iso to evaporate. Google the terms 'iso hash' and 'isopropanol hash' to see how it's done.
You'll need a glass pan to do the evap step in, so you can scrape it out easily at the end. The iso evaps off first, and then there is a long, VERY slow gentle heat step where you remove the water as well.
The product is inferior to water-extracted hash, because the chlorophyll is co-extracted and makes it taste like nasty pond water, and if you have a choice between iso hash and nothing, I'd save your trim for cannabutter instead. I have several grams of iso hash that NO ONE will take- I have GIVEN them to people and they are like, yeah this stuff sucks, you have it. lol.
